My favourite cocktails for a jolly old Christmas



After a year of trouble and strife, I am looking forward to a break over the Christmas period when I can step away from my computer, put my feet up (instead of under my desk) and indulge in a few treats.


The Catifsh and Colleagues Christmas meal won't happen. We've held this at The Boot in Histon for the past 2 years and it's always a lovely way to end the working year. On a personal level I have had to cancel our traditional Christmas Eve drinks drop in which is always a great success. Christmas Day won't involve any friends this year, just family including of course the dogs.


However, this won't prevent me from whipping up a few cocktails. Here are my top 3 for Christmas 2020.




1 measure gin

1 measure Martini Rosso

1 measure Campari

Slice of dried orange or fresh 

One ice cube (make sure you invest in a massive silicone ice cube tray for the best result)


Pour everything into a glass and drink.








50ml Pisco (Peruvian if you can)

50ml lime juice

50ml sugar syrup

1 egg white

large handful of ice

Few drops of Angostura bitters


Pour the Pisco, lime juice and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker or blender with the egg white and add a large handful of ice. Shake vigorously for 30 secs,, then strain into 2 glasses. Add a few drops of Angostura bitters to the top of each cocktail.



Pisco sour





2 ounces vodka

1 ounce kahlua


Add the ingredients into a glass with ice and stir until chilled.
